Whenever I try to do anything with it, Maxima gives the error:

Not Connected To Maxima

I've looked around, but I couldn't figure out how to fix this on Windows. The only results I got were for Fedora. According to them, I think this may have something to do with the firewall, but I can't figure out what.

I even tried adding wvMaxima to the Windows Firewall exceptions list, but the same error comes up.

UPDATE: I'm now using ZoneAlarm, but I haven't checked to see if the problem remains.

I've also tried using Compatibility mode with Windows XP (and others), but to no avail.
